The outlook for the luxury property market in Thailand remains good.
Buyers of luxury real estate in Thailand have not been affected by the economic contraction caused by the Covid-19 epidemic and by the tightening of the conditions for obtaining bank credit. Currently, luxury property buyers have cash and despite lower interest rates, most of them wants to buy without using bank loan.

Note that these projects were able to close the sale in a short period of time, which prompted developers to continue investing in luxury real estate projects.

However, if the developers are able to come up with projects with outstanding features, their project could be successful.

This is creating more opportunity and leverage premium sales prices of between 15 to 20%. The growth in branded residences and hotel licensed condominiums, which allow foreign investors to enjoy freehold ownership, play an prime role in this buoyant market
